Over The Counter Products for Anxiety and Depression

I have had some requests to know more about Over The Counter products for anxiety and depression.   I hope the following information on Over The Counter (OTC) products will help you in finding something to help ease your anxiety or depression symptoms.  Just remember if OTC products do not help, you may need to seek help from a mental health provider.

Anxiety and Depression can seem overwhelming at times. It would be a pain to have to go to the doctor to get a prescription each time we had a headache!  It would also be a pain to see a doctor for every symptom we had for anxiety or depression. Thankfully, there are some (OTC) products that may  help out with these issues.

Natrol is a company with natural drug-free ways of reducing your stress and anxiety. Natrol products do not contain yeast, wheat, corn, milk, egg, soy, gluten, artificial colors or flavors, added sugar, starch or preservatives. Their products are a safe and natural way to reduce daily stress and anxiety.  5-HTP helps with depression and relaxation.

SAM-e is a supplement frequently used for helping lift depression.   SAM-e enhances mood by promoting a healthy balance of neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin, which are part of overall healthy brain cell functions. Helps support detoxification and overall healthy liver functions.  It also promotes joint health by helping to maintain joint cartilage which naturally deteriorates with physical activity and age.

Relaxiva helps with relaxation. It is capsule is plant based and mostly contains Rhodiola root extract and Ashwaganda which have both been used for many years to aid in reducing stress. This over the counter medicine is even award-winning for how well it has worked in reducing stress. On top of that, it is gluten and soy free.

Natural Vitality Natural Calm is a Magnesium drink that is widely used and effective for reducing stress and nervousness!   Magnesium is one of the most important basic nutrients that power our bodies and it is required for more than 700 biochemical reactions. But since our bodies dont produce this mineral we need to replenish its supply every day. Due to nutrient-deficient soil and fast-paced lifestyles few of us (estimated at less than one in five) get sufficient magnesium in our diets. This means supplementation is needed and Natural Calm is the best-selling award-winning ionic magnesium that mixes easily in water to restore healthy magnesium levels quickly and effectively. Gluten Free Vegan Non-GMO Suggested Use As a dietary supplement place powder in a glass or mug add 2-3 oz

Similasan Anxiety Relief is a cheaper option that has been around for 25 years and boasts its amazing Swiss formula. It assists in relieving apprehension, nervousness, and restlessness. The ingredients list is extremely short which help you rest easy knowing you’re using a safe and natural product.

If you anxiety is severe and gets your back or neck bound up so tight you can’t move well, try a TENS UNIT!   I highly recommend one since I have had to use them in Emergency room on occasion.   They can be purchased  cheap now and can provide great relief at home.

If your anxiety isn’t as severe and you sometimes just need something to help you kick it and keep it at bay, try L-theanine. L-theanine is a natural phytochemical found in green tea. It works as a non-essential amino acid in connection with a specific neurotransmitter in the brain. Studies show that L-theanine simply boosts the body’s natural way of coping with daily anxiety or stress.

Bach offers a child’s line for kids dealing with stress.  Rescue Remedy—a natural stress relief that is safe and natural for kids. There is a Rescue Remedy with alcohol in it so read the label.  The one referenced here doesn’t contain alcohol and is not addictive. It is safe for children but you wouldn’t want to leave it out where children can access it.   It comes in liquid form which makes it easier to slip into a drink or drop under a child’s tongue so they can safely and easily get it down. It works to restore a child’s mood balance and relieve stress or anxiety throughout the day.

Combating stress and anxiety can be hard. However, it’s nice to know that there are so many options including the ones listed above and many more that can help provide immediate relief. If you take a look at your local health food or drug store, you will find options you didn’t even know you had.
